RESILIENCE QUOTIENT Leadership with heart and purpose by Alexia Michiels

Whether you run a small business, a multinational corporation, a hair salon, a construction site, a law firm, a shop, a school, or manage apprentices and interns, this book is for you.

The recent evolution of the world and the massive use of technology have changed the way we work. The unknown and the doubts have given rise to salutary realizations that allow us to grow beyond the ordeal. The climate emergency also requires major transformations.

This book invites you to rethink the way you lead a team by valuing and cultivating resilience skills. It encourages you to refocus on your priorities, insists on the importance of relations and the quest for meaning. The impact of the resilient leaders will be proportional to the strength of the bonds they manage to create with themselves, others and the environment at large.

A practical menu enables you to convert these ideas into actions and thus develop a leadership with heart and purpose, for the benefit of all stakeholders.

“Resilience, which is brilliantly decoded in this book, is the key for any leader to face new challenges, stay grounded, remain his/her true self and outperform in the long-run.”
Dr Ilham Kadri, CEO and President of Solvay’s Executive Committee

Disconnecting incoming emails helps you stay focused on the task at hand. While minimizing distractions, you become more productive. Working “offline” gives your immediate world – task or people – your undivided attention and supports your presence.
